At a town hall meeting in Greeley, Colo. last Saturday, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) said plainly what’s been on Americans’ minds for months now: we’re $13 trillion in debt and “have nothing to show for it.” Sen. Bennet also pointed out this record spending has done nothing to create new jobs.
A new Reuters poll shows Sen. Bennet’s concern is, politically-speaking, right on target. Reuters explains, “Unemployment and government spending topped voters’ economic concerns, with 72 percent and 67 percent of respondents saying they were very worried over those issues respectively.”
